Welcome to Oakwood 



Here is a place ''where loveliness keeps house," 

.... where "true education" means more than the pursual of a 
certain course of study, 

.... where the Oakwood program of Christian education is 
focused both on Christian growth and academic excel- 
lence, 

.... where students from scores of states and foreign lands 
"enter to learn and depart to serve," and 

.... where both teacher and student find a common bond of 
unity as "companions in learning and searching for 
truth." 



Look through these pages and get a view of Oakwood College. 
Behold its emphasis on the spiritual, its viable academic pro- 
gram, its student-centered activities, its beautiful campus, its 
modern physical plant, and all that go together to make Oakwood 
a place "where loveliness keeps house." 



LOCATION 

Oakwood College is located five miles northwest of the heart of the city 
of Hunts ville. Hunts ville is a cosmopolitan city located in the north central 
portion of the state of Alabama and nestled in the beautiful Tennessee Valley 
at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It has a population of 
160,000. 

The College property consists of 1,185 acres at an elevation of 1,100 
feet above sea level. The grounds of the campus are appropriately land- 
scaped and afford a delightful setting for the College. 

Huntsville is served by the Continental Trailways and connection with 
other bus lines can be made in practically all nearby cities. Huntsville is also 
served by Southern, Eastern, and United AirUnes. 

Upon arrival at times other than the opening dates published in this 
Bulletin, students will find taxi service available. It is expected that all 
students will make full arrangements with the College before their arrival.

INSTITUTIONAL MISSION 

Oakwood College, a four- year undergraduate, church-related, liberal 
arts institution founded in 1896 in the city of Huntsville, Alabama, is 
historically committed to providing a unique and challenging educational 
opportunity for students who exhibit academic potential but whose needs for 
training stem from educational and socio-economic deprivation. The Col- 
lege has historically demonstrated its philosophy that meaningful education 
is more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It, therefore, endeavors 
to foster the holistic view of educating the whole being through the harmoni- 
ous development of the physical, cultural, intellectual, mental, and spiritual 
facuhies. 

The mission of the College inheres in the provision of a liberal, yet 
functional curriculum program in arts and sciences, and in professional 
preparation in education and business. Such liberal, professional, and pre- 
professional programs are further complemented by experiential and occu- 
pational learning in selected fields and vocations. 

Finding in the Christian faith the true basis for understanding all human 
experiences, Oakwood accepts the responsibility of achieving in each stu- 
dent academic excellence but acknowledges the further obligation to main- 
tain and exemplify Christian commitment in scholarships and in all institu- 
tional endeavors. Throughout its programs of instruction, research, and 
public service, the College seeks to enlighten the mind, to enhance the 
quality of personality, to enable each individual, out of Christian love and 
concern, to serve mankind creatively, responsibly, and humanely, and to 
enkindle a never-ending search for knowledge and truth. 

Because of its historic commitment to serve those who exhibit high 
academic potential but are deprived of educational enrichment, the College 
provides a strong basic educational and support program through academic 
advising and counsehng. To meet the needs of its gifted and average 
students, Oakwood College further shares with other institutions the univer- 
sal concerns of higher education: a teaching function designed to develop 
highly skilled individuals dedicated to the improvement of life in American 
society through service to the community. Toward this end, the College 
seeks to attract qualified and dedicated faculty and encourages through them 
experimentation with traditional and non-traditional educational methods 
and instructional strategies to increase the quality and productivity of its 
educational services. 

Oakwood College is also committed to serving the needs of the under- 
prepared student by ( 1) providing a program for the elimination of deficits in 
basic skills essential for a college education, (2) providing guidance and 
counseling for that group of students which focus upon those dimensions 
which might be and often are inhibitive of success; and (3) using varied 
instructional approaches. It is the Institution's design that through these 
techniques the under-prepared student will acquire the necessary self- 



General Information 29 

confidence and tools to successfully complete programs focused on tradi- 
tional as well as non-traditional career pursuits or programs leading to 
graduate or professional education. 

Recognizing the influence of a suitable environment upon learning and 
the assurance of achieving the mission described above, the College seeks to 
provide a physical environment and appropriate academic and student sup- 
port systems to facilitate the variety of human interaction and relationships 
essential for learning, and to provide programs and facilities which allow for 
continuous evaluation, growth, and expansion of the Institution. 

GOALS 

The mission of Oakwood College can be expressed in six general goals: 
spiritual, intellectual, cultural, personal adjustment, vocational, a.ndphysi- 
cal. 

1 . Spiritual: To provide a spiritual environment and religious instruc- 
tion that will enable the student to reflect fully the image of Jesus 
Christ through emphasis on the development of character and talent, 
the nobililty of ambition, the keenness of perception with sound 
judgment, so that the student is prepared to render unselfish service 
to God and man. 

2. Intellectual: To provide academic programs and comprehensive 
curricula made up of a broad range of degree programs which will 
allow each student to acquire knowledge and skills to grow person- 
ally, socially, academically, and professionally, and to meet their 
needs and societal demands. 

3 . Cultural: Enrich the lives of community residents and students by 
serving as a cultural and educational center, offering cultural and 
recreational programs of interest and value. 

4. Personal Adjustment: To provide opportunities which will help 
students identify, clarify, and develop their aesthetic, moral, and 
spiritual values and philosophy, through supportive student services 
programs which facilitate growth and success in the academic, 
social, economic, and spiritual community. 

5 . Vocational: To provide for the students courses which will impart 
skills and knowledge in certain vocations best suited to the students' 
interests and aptitudes, while teaching them the dignity of labor 
through provisions of on-campus work opportunities and courses 
which provide field experiences which aid in their choice of a 
vocation. 

6. Physical: To provide a health and physical education program along 
with recreational activities that will give an understanding of and 
encourage proper care of the body. Consistency in the teaching of 
good health habits is carried throughout the College's food and 
recreational program.

GOVERNING STANDARDS 
It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and 
women with high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline 
necessary for Christian leadership. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded 
upon the principle that character building is the highest object of 
education and that a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and 
godliness, is the objective alike of the student for himself and of the 
College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established 
to provide a Christian environment in which students may prepare 
themselves for service at home and in other lands. In order to 
maintain this environment certain general rules of conduct apply. 
Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. It is 
the responsibility of every student to secure from the Office of Stu- 
dent Affairs and to read the rules and regulations governing student 
life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Familiarity 
with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book wdll 
make life at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more 
enjoyable. 



36 Oakwood College 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone 
on his scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct 
and his attitude toward the community in which he lives. As a 
citizen of the college community the student must realize that he 
has been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no right 
to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules of 
the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the 
standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of 
entering any department of the College is subject to its supervision 
and jurisdiction from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his 
connection is terminated by graduation or by any officially ap- 
proved withdrawal. 

The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his 
continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and general 
conduct, as well as his scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are 12 
offenses which are considered to be very serious and may be cause 
for dismissal or serious disciplinary action on the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of 
these practices would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, 
the first offense may result in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose 
influence is detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately 
from the campus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing 
should he return without permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence: Permission for an ordinary leave of absence 
from the campus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence 
Dean. Approval must also be obtained from the work superintend- 
ent. When a leave of absence involves absence from a class, per- 
mission must be obtained from the Dean of the College. When the 
leave of absence takes a student farther than the city of Huntsville, 
it must be approved by the Office of Student Affairs. Written permis- 
sion from the parent or guardian for travelling must be on file 
for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to 
this rule is granted only to students who are both of legal age and 
self-supporting. In every case, working students must secure the 
approval of their work superintendent before presenting their re- 
quests to their respective deans. 

Attendance at Religious Services: Oakwood College is emphati- 
cally a Christian college. Attendance at evening worships, chapel, 
Friday evening vespers, Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning 
church service is a basic requirement. 



Student Life 37 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an auto- 
mobile frequently militate against success in college, students are 
not encouraged to bring automobiles with them to the College unless 
absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring automo- 
biles to the College, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles 
owned by other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the com- 
munity, who own or operate any type of motor vehicle (car, motor- 
cycle, scooter, etc.) must register it with the Office of Security 
at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 24 hours 
of his arrival should he arrive after registration has been concluded 
or within 24 hours of its procurement within any quarter of the 
school year. Owners must have a valid operator's license and must 
show proof of liability insurance (including medical coverage) at 
the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic enforce- 
ment personnel. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

All unmarried students are required to live in one of the 
College residence halls and to board in the College Cafeteria unless 
they live with parents or with other close relatives in the City of 
Huntsville. When campus housing is overcrowded, students age 23 
and over may apply to the Housing Committee for permission to 
live in the community. Under special circumstances, students under 
age 23 also may apply to the Housing Committee for permission 
to live off campus in an officially approved home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a 
quarter. Failure to secure official approval to reside in the com- 
munity or to withdraw from a college residence hall when directed 
to do so will invalidate the registration of a student. Students who 
have received approval for off campus living may be called into the 
College residence halls at any time the administration deems neces- 
sary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space 
in the residence halls. 

Residence Supervision: Each residence hall is under the direc- 
tion of a Residence Dean. The Residence Deans have general super- 
vision of the well-being of the students under their charge. 

APARTMENTS 

The College ow^ns thirty units of one- and two-bedroom apart- 
ments which are available for married students. These apartments 
rent for reasonable amounts. There are also approved apartments 
in the community, furnished and unfurnished, in which married 
students may live. For information write the Business Manager. 

GRADUATE STUDIES AT OAKWOOD COLLEGE 

During the summer of 1979 Loma Linda University conducted 
its Masters of Public Health Program (MPH) on the Oak wood 



38 Oakwood College 

College campus. Beginning the summer of 1980 Andrews Univer- 
sity, along with its Theological Seminary, will offer courses leading 
to masters degrees in education and/or religion. For more informa- 
tion concerning this program, write to the Office of the Dean of 
Academic Affairs. 

THE COUNSELING CENTER 

A comprehensive program of guidance and counseling services 
is made available to students. 

SERVICES 

Services include TESTING (diagnostic assessment, national 
placement examinations, CLEP), COUNSELING (personal, career, 
pre-marital, marriage and family), PLACEMENT (post-baccalau- 
reate recruitment for prospective graduates, full- and part-time jobs 
within the metropolitan area of Huntsville), and DEVELOPMEN- 
TAL GUIDANCE (career development, human relations, leader- 
ship training, and family life education) . 

GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY 

The Center's emphasis is on personal development. Its primary 
goal is to help students become more effective in handling and 
resolving problem situations before they become critical by teaching 
them what to expect and how to behave adaptively under most cir- 
cumstances. It is a preventive philosophy which is believed to be 
most suitable to the needs, beliefs, and practices of Seventh-day 
Adventists and other fundamentally conservative Christians. 

The goal for its consulting activities is to facilitate the continu- 
ing development and maintenance of an optimal collegiate environ- 
ment for learning and individual growth. 

CONFIDENTIALITY 

Personal information regarding specific individuals is held in 
strictest confidence and may not be released without the written 
consent of the persons involved. 

COST 

Professional services to students are given without charge. 
There are, however, charges associated with the computer scoring 
and analysis of diagnostic tests and the administration of the na- 
tional placement examinations and CLEP. 

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

Two special programs are administered through the Counsel- 
ing Center. They are, 1 ) Cooperative Education, and 2) Freshman 
Studies. 



Counseling 39 



COOPERATIVE EDUCATION 

The Cooperative Education Program (CEP) combines class- 
room learning with actual work experience in community busi- 
nesses and corporations. This is done on an alternating basis in a 
work setting that closely relates to a student's major field of study 
and his/her career aspiration. 

Benefits. Academic credits are earned in the classroom and on 
the job. In addition, a number of other student needs are met. They 
are, 1) money to pay educational costs and provide for personal 
necessities; 2) opportunity to test the propriety of educational and 
career goals; 3) opportunity to enrich the learning process by ap- 
plying theoretical concepts to the practical, concrete demands of 
real work situations and their attendant problems; and 4) upon 
graduation, increased employability because of the distinct advan- 
tage of having a college degree and bona fide work experience in the 
career field of one's choice. 

Eligibility. To qualify for the program, students must have 
completed their freshman year and have and maintain a cumula- 
tive GPA of at least 2.50. Transfer students may apply after com- 
pleting twelve (12) hours in residence at Oakwood College. 

Rate of Pay. Once hired, students are paid by the employing 
organizations at the standard rate for entry level workers or in 
accordance with their individual experience and skills. Under no 
circumstances should they earn less than minimum wage. 

Academic Credit. Up to twelve (12) hours of academic credit 
may be earned for each quarter that you participate in the program. 
For written details on how to qualify for these hours, contact the 
Counseling-Placement Office or the Office of Academic Affairs. 

The credits earned through participatoin in CEP are elective 
credits and may be included in the total required for graduation. 
However, they will NOT be deducted from the minimum hours re- 
quired for the major and/or minor. It must be understood that, in 
most cases, participation in the program will entail more than four 
years of study to complete the requirements for the baccalaureate 
degree. 

Cooperative Education courses may be identified by the prefix 
CE. The last digit of the number refers to the work period for that 
year. For example: CE 301 - CE 306: First Work Period through 
Sixth Work Period. 

Where to Apply. Students wdshing to apply for CEP should 
first, 1) consult with the Coordinator of Cooperative Education at 
the Counseling Center, and 2) submit a formal request to the 
Academic Policies Committee. 

FRESHMAN STUDIES 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, 
instructional, and supportive services to first-year students. Its pur- 



40 Oakwood College 

pose is to increase their potential for academic success and personal 
adjustment to the demands of college life. Components of the pro- 
gram include: 
Orientation. 

The week preceding registration for the Fall Quarter of each 
year is known as Freshman Orientation Week. New students ad- 
mitted to freshman status are expected to report as notified and, 
upon arrival, to participate in all of the scheduled activities of the 
week. These include (a) orientation to the academic and residential 
requirements of the College and the resources that are available to 
assist all students in meeting them successfully; (b) developmental 
guidance and instruction regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes that 
are essential for academic and personal success. 
Diagnostic Assessment. 

During Freshman Orientation Week and at the beginning of 
every quarter thereafter, special tests are administered which are 
required of all new freshmen. They are the American College Test 
(ACT), the Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test (SDRT), the Cah- 
fomia Personality Inventory (CPI), and the Mooney Problem 
Checklist (MPC). 

Results from these tests are used for (1) placing students in 
appropriate courses of study; (2) facilitating the development and/ 
or provision of prescriptive teaching materials and strategies; (3) 
fulfilling Alabama state requirements for entrance into special 
programs; and (4) assisting advisors and counselors in their work 
of helping students to plan their academic programs, evaluate their 
academic progress, and set realistic personal and career goals. Ac- 
cumulated data will help the College to determine what areas of its 
programs and services needs strengthening and/or modification in 
order to effectively fulfill its commitment to the success of its stu- 
dents. 
Academic Advisement and Program Planning. 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be 
acknowledged, first-year students will be encouraged to concentrate 
on general education requirements for the purpose of academic ex- 
ploration and continuing self-discovery. Freshman advisors, by 
means of extended interviews and performance reviews throughout 
the year, will assist in the process of confirming or modifying the 
personal interests and aspirations of each student. 
Special Services. 

Students with special academic and developmental needs will 
receive appropriate assistance from Inner College, the school's 
learning resource center. Assistance will be in the form of individ- 
ualized course loads, specialized instruction, tutoring, and counsel- 
ing performed by a dedicated staff of professional counselors and 
selected honor students. Referrals for more specialized services will 
be made as warranted.

physics for those wishing to major in science, mathematics, or 
nursing, or take pre-professional work in engineering, medicine, 
dentistry or other medical arts curricula.

are strongly recommended. 

Students admitted with fewer than two units of religion and 
two units of one foreign language will be required to complete 
additional courses in these areas beyond the general education 
requirements for the baccalaureate degrees. (An exception to the 
policy involving foreign language study may be noted in certain 
curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.) 

ADMISSION TO ADVANCED PLACEMENT FOR FRESHMEN 

Oakwood College will consider requests for advanced place- 
ment of freshmen from any secondary school graduate who believes 
that he qualifies for such status. Final decisions on all awards of 
credit, or advanced placement, are made by the Academic Policies 
Committee on the merits of each individual case. Petition should 
be made to the Dean of the College for recommendation to the 
committee. 



Admission Standards 45 

To be considered eligible for advanced placement, the student 
should have: 

1. A grade-point average of at least 3.0 on the four-point scale 
in secondary courses other than art music, physical educa- 
tion, driver training, and vocational courses. 

2. A satisfactory score on the Advanced Placement Examina- 
tions of the Educational Testing Service in the areas of the 
courses taken. 

3. Satisfactory evaluation by the English Department on his 
ability to write and speak the English language. 

Areas in w^hich courses may be taken are American history, 
biology, chemistry, European history, French, German, Spanish, 
literature, English composition, mathematics, and physics- 
Such credit is evaluated in terms of degree requirements on 
the same basis as transfer credit. 

Students in high schools who plan to attend Oakwood College 
and who demonstrate proficiency in a field of study by having 
})assed one or more of the Advanced Placement examinations will 
be given credit for college courses where proficiency has been 
ascertained. 

Each academic department of the College recognizes the place- 
ment value of these examinations and has designated the specific 
courses which may be credited to the student's record, when a 
student presents evidence of having passed the examination. 

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students wishing to transfer to Oakwood College from another 
college or university must follow the same application procedure 
as other students. The college from which the student is trans- 
ferring should forward to the Registrar an official transcript and a 
statement of honorable dismissal. Transfer credits may be applied 
toward the requirements for a degree when the student will have 
satisfactorily completed a minimum of twelve quarter hours in 
residence. A maximum of ninety-six quarter hours may be ac- 
cepted from a junior college. A student transferring from another 
college will be given credit only for work completed with grades of 
"C" or above. Background deficiencies revealed by transcripts and 
entrance examination will be given individual attention. 

Transfer from Unaccredited Colleges. Such students having 
a grade-point average of at least C may be accepted on a proba- 
tionary basis, in which case their previous credit will be validated 
only after the successful completion of a quarter's work of at least 
12 hours at Oakwood College.

ADMISSION OF VETERANS 

The College is approved as an institution qualified to offer 
education to veterans under the provisions of The Veterans Read- 
justment Act of 1966.

certificates from a state in which they reside are urged to do so. 

In general, a veteran should secure his Certificate for Educa- 
tion and Training from his regional office before coming to college.

time to get his authorization before the opening date of school, he 
may file his application through the College Counseling Service. 
Records of Educational Achievement while in the Armed Services 
(Form 100) should be submitted to the Records Office for evaluation. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

Oakwood College is approved by the U.S. Office of Immigration 
for the admission of nonimmigrant students. However, no student 
should leave his country with the intention of enrolling at this 
college until a letter of acceptance and an 1/20 Form have been 
issued to him by the Office of Admissions. To obtain these docu- 
ments each international student must fulfill the following:

time after being issued an F-1 (student's) visa, will not be admitted unless he intends 
to attend the school specified in that visa. Therefore, if before he departs for the 
United States the student decides to attend some other school, he should communicate 
with the issuing American consular office for the purpose of having such other school 
specified in the visa. Any other nonimmigrant student will not be admitted to the 
United States unless he intends to attend the school specified in the Form 1-20 or Form

A nonimmigrant student who does not register at the school specified in his tem- 
porary entry permit (Form 1-94), or whose school attendance is terminated, or who 
takes less than a full course of study, or who accepts unauthorized employment, 
thereby fails to maintain his status and must depart from the United States immedi- 
ately. 

WITHDRAWAL PROCEDURE

tion for the year is determined by the amount of credit he has 
earned at the beginning of the college year. A student who may 
meet the hour requirement, but whose cumulative Grade Point 
Average is below 2.00 will be listed in the next lower class until 
his cumulative Grade Point Average is raised to 2.00 or better. 
Student classes are organized early in the fall quarter according 
to the following levels of academic achievement: 

Freshman 0- 36 quarter hours

program. 



Academic Policies 51 

REGISTRATION 

For all students, new and returning alike, registration includes 
counseling, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are 
expected to register on the registration date as announced in the 
Bulletin. A registration envelope with full information on pro- 
cedures will be issued at the Registrar's Office to the student for- 
mally accepted. 

Students are not officially registered for a course until 1 ) their 
'Registration form'' is turned in to the Records Office and 2) their 
names appear on the computerized class rosters of the teachers. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

Permission to register late must be obtained from the Academic 
Dean. Students failing to register during the scheduled registration 
periods will be assessed a late registration fee of $25. Class periods 
missed because of late registration will be counted as absences from 
the class. Ordinarily^ no student will be allowed to register after the 
designated registration days have passed. All classwork missed must 
be made up to the teacher's satisfaction. 

Permission to register late should ordinarily be obtained before 
registration day. In any case the Dean must be presented satis- 
factory evidence to indicate that it was not possible for the student 
to register on the designated date. 

DROP, ADD, WITHDRAWAL 

If you think you want to add or drop a class or change a section 
after having completed registration for credit or audit, follow the 
procedures: 

Drop. Before the deadline (and sixth week of instruction), 
1) Get a drop voucher from the Registrar's Office, 2) Fill it out 
and secure signatures of your academic advisor, class teacher. 
Business Office, Academic Dean, and Registrar, 3) Return the 
voucher to the Registrar's Office immediately, for the effective date 
is not that written on the voucher but the date on which it is turned 
in to the Registrar, 4) Expect a "W" (withdrew) for the class if 
you drop before the sixth-week deadline, a "WP" (withdrew pass- 
ing) or "WF" (withdrew failing) if you drop after the deadline, 
5) Forgetting or failing to drop officially through processing a 
voucher will result in an automatic "WF" or other final grade 
based on classwork completed, 6) Drops are not permitted during 
the last two (2) weeks of a quarter, and 7) Refunds for dropped 
classes are discussed in this bulletin under the heading of "Refunds." 

Add. By or before the last day of registration, follow the same 
steps (1-3) as listed above under "Drop." Courses may not be added 
after registration closes although more time is allowed for dropping, 

A charge of $5.00 is made for each change of schedule except 
when the change is made necessary by a) cancellation of a sched- 



52 Oakwood College 

uled class or b) change of class time which renders it impossible for 
the student to maintain his or her original schedule. 

PRE-EXAMINATION WEEK 

Pre-examination Week is the week that precedes the final quar- 
ter examinations. During this week, no off-campus field trips, major 
examinations or extracurricular activities requiring student partici- 
pation may be scheduled. This week should enable students to de- 
vote full time to the completion of course projects and to prepare for 
final examinations. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Finals. All students must take the final examination in each 
course at the time listed in the official time schedule or no credit will 
be granted for the course. Exceptions may be made only by the Dean 
of the College. Should the examination schedule require a student 
to complete four examinations in one day, arrangements may be 
made with the dean to complete one of the examinations at another 
time. "Exam Permits," representing paid financial accounts, are 
required for taking finals. 

SPECIAL EXAMS 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having compe- 
tency or exposure in a certain area covered by a required course 
may meet an academic requirement by passing a waiver examina- 
tion, an examination for credit, or the CLEP examination. Each of 
these examinations should be equal in scope and difficulty to a final 
examination in the course. 

Not more than forty -eight (48) hours of the total credit hours 
required for graduation may be earned by the examination for 
credit and/or the CLEP subject examination. The deadline for 
seniors challenging a course by examination is the mid-term of the 
Winter Quarter. 

The various departments concerned will decide what subjects 
are open for examination for credit. The student must obtain a 
score on any such examination which would equate with a "C" 
grade in the course in order to be eligible for credit or waiver. 

A student may not take a more advanced course in a given 
area while waiting for permission from the Academic Policies Com- 
mittee to sit for a lower level course. No credit will be recorded until 
the student has earned at least twelve (12) hours at Oakwood with 
a minimum GPA of 2.00. 

Grades below "D" may not be changed by these examinations. 
A student may not take a proficiency examination for credit for 
the same course more than once. 

Examination for Waiver. Students who present satisfactory 
evidence of having competence in an area covered by a required 



Academic Policies 53' 

course may apply to the Academic Policies Committee to take an 
examination for waiver. After being given approval by the Com- 
mittee and having paid $25.00 to the Accounting Office as an exami- 
nation fee (non-refundable) the student will be administered the 
examination. If he earns a satisfactory score on the examination, 
the required course may be waived and he will be allowed to sub- 
stitute some other course in its place. Hour credit toward graduation 
cannot be earned by this examination. 

Examination for Credit. If the student can present satisfactory 
evidence of a background of formal study or competency in any 
area of the curriculum, he may be permitted by the Academic Poli- 
cies Committee to sit for a comprehensive examination covering the 
requirements for any such course taught at Oakwood and receive 
hour credit toward graduation. If such an exam is not available at 
Oakwood through CLEP, then the appropriate department prepares 
an exam. Upon approval of the Committee, the student will pay to 
the Accounting Office the tuition based on $20.00 per hour of credit 
offered by the course. This fee is not refundable. The grade earned 
on the examination wdll be recorded. 

If your special exam is for a course already taken for which 
you received a final grade, it will be administered only during any 
quarter following the quarter for which the final grade was received. 

CLEP — College Level Examination Program. Oakwood Col- 
lege grants the appropriate credit for each subject exam passed in 
this program by the College Entrance Examination Board. The fol- 
lowing statements summarize the program: 

1. The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a 
student may apply toward graduation is forty-eight (48) 
quarter hours. 

2. In each major the maximum number of CLEP SUBJECT 
EXAMINATION credits a student may earn is determined 
by the major department. 

3. In the case of the core requirements, the Academic Policies 
Committee will determine which courses can be taken by 
the CLEP EXAMINATION and how much credit a student 
may earn from the basic core requirements without over- 
lapping in the subject area. 

4. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before 
credit can be granted. 

5. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course 
credit, but no letter grade shall be assigned or quality points 
considered. 

6. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may 
not repeat the course for which credit was given by exam- 
ination for a grade. 



54 



Oakwood College 



7. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before 
entering Oakwood College must have the approval of the 
Office of the Registrar before the test is taken. 

8. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are 
subject to review by the Office of Admissions. 

9. A fee that will cover the cost of the examination and its 
administration will be charged each student desiring to take 
the CLEP examination at Oakwood College.

GRADE-POINT AVERAGE 

The grade-point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed 
by totaling the grade points earned in all courses attempted and 
dividing by the total hours attempted. Credits for which an F or 
WF are received are included in calculating the grade-point aver- 
age. The symbols WP, AU and NC are disregarded in computing 
the grade-point average. Incompletes are not included in the 
G.P.A. until after the time specified for removal. 

PASS OR FAIL PROCEDURES 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass-fail basis a student must 
be a Sophomore, Junior, or Senior, and must not be on academic 
probation. The total number of hours that may be taken on this 
basis is 16. The pass-fail system applies to elective courses only. 



56 Oakwood College 

Approval for the P-F option should be obtained at the Records 
Office before the close of late registration. Registration changes in 
the process are final as of the last day to drop without academic 
penalty. 

NOTE: Some graduate and professional schools treat the "P" 
as a "D." 

DEAN'S LIST 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.5, who 
carry a minimum of 15 quarter hours with no grade below a B, 
and no incompletes, are eligible for membership on the dean's list. 

HONOR ROLL 

Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours and who maintain 
a grade point average of 3.00, or above, during a given quarter with 
no grade below a "C" shall be considered HONOR STUDENTS 
for the quarter. 

HONORS CONVOCATION 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scho- 
lastic achievement, loyalty to College standards, and exemplary 
citizenship, the College conducts an annual Honors Convocation. 
To be eligible for participation the student must have a cumulative 
grade point average of not less than 3.50 for a minimum of 24-32 
hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA of 3.25, and

Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point aver- 
age of 3.75, or above. 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

When at the end of a quarter a student is behind in his or her 
classwork, the teacher does not automatically grant a grade of "I" 
to that student for more time to do the requirements. If, however, 
because of interruptive illness or other unavoidable circumstances, 
a student should desire the privilege of receiving a grade of "I" 
(Incomplete) to allow more time to fulfill class requirements, that 
student may apply for such a temporary grade by doing all of the 
following before the end of final exam week: 



Academic Policies 57 

1. Pick up and fill out a "Request and Authorization for IN- 
COMPLETE" form from the Dean's Office. 

2. Attach thereto a doctor's statement if the reason is medical, 
and 

3. Get the signatures of the class instructor, the instructor's 
department head, and the Academic Dean. 

4. Return the form to the Dean's Office and receive an answer 
from the Dean before leaving the campus. 

When an "I" is received, it may be changed to a regular grade 
when and if the classwork is completed not later than the extension 
deadline set by the teacher and/or the Academic Dean. Such a 
deadline might range anywhere from a few days to several weeks 
but no longer than the sixth week of the next quarter even when 
the student is not registered the next quarter. The '7" automatically 
converts to an "F" // not removed within the prescribed time. 
Should more time because of further illness or unavoidable circum- 
stances be needed to make up your incomplete work, you may, 
before the deadline expires, request in writing an extension of time 
from the Academic Policies Committee. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION 

All students whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is 
less than 2.00 shall be placed on academic probation. Retained at 
Oakwood College under restricted privileges, students whose grade 
point average is less than 1.75 must take part in the Special Instruc- 
tion Program (SIP) conducted by our Inner College Service. Failure 
of such students to take part in the the SIP may result in dismissal 
from the College. Students below 2.00 who fail to make acceptable 
progress in the estimation of the institution will be dropped. 

When a student is dropped for the first time because of poor 
scholarship, he or she is not eligible to be considered for readmis- 
sion or reacceptance until after the end of two (2) quarters from 
the date of dismissal. When dropped the second time, the student 
becomes eligible for readmission or reacceptance after one (1) cal- 
endar year from the date of dismissal during which time the student 
must have attended another accredited college for at least one 
quarter, carrying a minimum of 12 quarter hours with no grade 
lower than "C." In both cases, to be so considered, the student must 
present a request to the Admissions Office. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 is denied per- 
mission to represent the College in any official capacity or hold of- 
fice in any student organization. 

The following is a summary list of requirements for a student 
on academic probation (GPA below 2.0) : 

1. Limit registration to class load of 14 or less hours per quar- 
ter. 



58 Oakwood College 

2. Include in class load at least one course in which he or she 
has received a "D" or "F" and/or enroll in a remedial 
course as counseled by the academic advisor, and 

3. Go to the Inner College Service for assistance. 

INNER COLLEGE 

Inner College is an academic support service which exists 
for the purpose of helping students who need assistance in any 
academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer-tutoring and 
academic advisement under the supervision of a full-time counselor- 
coordinator. The center also maintains a wide variety of media 
materials and individualized study guides. The student (peer) tutors 
are generally upperclassmen recommended by the various depart- 
ments. 

The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall 
and is open during the day and evening hours in order to accom- 
modate all students desiring such assistance. 

REPEATED COURSES 

Occasionally students express an interest in repeating a course 
if the earned grade cannot apply toward graduation or for other 
reasons. 

A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of 
"C" only by permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

A student who has earned a grade of "D" in a major, minor, 
cognate, or in other required courses may, on the advice of his major 
professor, repeat the course or take another course in the same area, 
if it is recommended. In either case, the professor expresses his 
desire in writing. 

The student who repeats a course is required to register in the 
regular way, repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory 
requirements and other required activities. 

If a student repeats a course, he may receive whatever grade 
he earns, but he may not repeat the course for credit more than 
once. 

Each time a course is taken the student's record will show the 
hours for which he registered and the grade points earned. 

When a student is granted permission to repeat a course in 
which a failing grade has previously been recorded, his GPA will 
be computed on the basis of the final grade earned. However, both 
grades will appear on his transcript. 

REMEDIAL CLASSES 

Credit hours for remedial work are not applied toward gradua- 
tion. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Students may audit courses only by permission of the Aca- 
demic Dean and the instructor concerned. 



Academic Policies 59 

Those who are interested in such courses should register at the 
time of the regular registration. 

No credit is given for a course audited. 

The tuition charged is one-half the regular charge for credit. 

Laboratory courses may not be audited. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a 
credit basis after the first week of the course. 

CORRESPONDENCE 

No student shall take w^ork by correspondence or enroll in 
another institution of higher learning while registered at Oakwood 
College without permission from the Academic Policies Committee. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses 
taken with the Home Study Institute, which is the Extension 
Division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of corre- 
spondence work or extension work credit may apply toward a 
baccalaureate degree program and twelve hours toward a two-year 
terminal program. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence 
or extension work while in residence only if the required course is 
not obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or 
extension work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the of- 
ficial transcript for the w^ork completed must be in the Registrar's 
Office before April 15 of the quarter in which graduation is ex- 
pected. 

All correspondence or extension work, whether taken while in 
residence or during the summer, must be approved in advance by 
the Academic Policies Committee and Registrar respectively. Ap- 
propriate forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Correspondence and extension credit with a "D" grade is un- 
acceptable. No correspondence credit will be entered upon the stu- 
dent's record until he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in resi- 
dence v^dth an average of at least "C." 

In no case may more than 17 hours of combined residence, 
correspondence and/or extension work be carried in a quarter with- 
out the approval of the Academic Policies Committee. 

TRANSIENT LEHERS 

When an Oakwood student of regular standing finds it neces- 
sary to drop out of attendance for one quarter but desires to register 
at another college or university, he or she may request a "transient 
letter" from the Academic Policies Committee which recommends 
the student for temporary admission to that other school without 
the student's having to go through normal admission requirements. 



60 Oakwood College 

Transient letters, however, are not granted for attendance at col- 
leges or universities within a fifty-mile radius of Huntsville. 

Transient credit with grades below "C" is unacceptable. Stu- 
dents from other schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood 
must provide official support from the home institution. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

The Records Office releases transcripts of a student's work at 
the college only upon the student's written request. Telephone re- 
quests cannot be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript for his use, but 
official transcripts must be sent directly to other colleges, organiza- 
tions, and other approved sources. Official transcripts normally can- 
not be handcarried without prior permission of the receiving insti- 
tution; however, if permission is granted, the transcript will be 
delivered in a sealed envelope. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information con- 
cerning the record of any student who has unpaid accounts or other 
charges or who is delinquent in payment of student loans. No ex- 
ceptions will be made. 

Two weeks from the time we receive your request should be 
allowed for the processing and mailing of the transcript. Official 
transcripts from other institutions which have been presented to 
Oakwood for admission and evaluation of credit become the prop- 
erty of Oakwood and are not reissued or copied for release. Each 
student is entitled to one (1) official transcript without charge. A 
fee of $2.00 is charged for each additional transcript. 

AHENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, 
worships, and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack 
of attendance, therefore, implies lack of co-operation with the re- 
quirements of the College. 

CLASS ABSENCES 

Oakwood College operates under the following principles: 

It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the Col- 
lege policies concerning attendance and to make his interpretations 
known to his students at the beginning of each course. Every 
instructor has the right to count class participation including at- 
tendance in calculating the term grade. It is the responsibility of 
the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself in- 
formed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examina- 
tions at the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all 
assignments when they are due. 
Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: 



Academic Policies 61 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and 
laboratory appointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any 
reason the total number of absences is double the number of credit 
hours of the course per quarter, credit may, at the discretion of the 
instructor, be forfeited and a grade of "FA" be recorded. Absences 
are counted from the first official day of classes. Three tardinesses 
are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more than ten (10) 
minutes is considered an absence. Absences immediately preceding 
or following a vacation, school picnic, or field day are counted double. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the 
student from classes or relieve the student of required class work. 
The student however, must make arrangements with the teacher 
for every anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at 
least 48 hours before the beginning of such anticipated schedules. 
All make-up work, involving examinations and other class require- 
ments, must be made up within seven (7) days after the absence 
is incurred. 

ASSEMBLY ABSENCES 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to 
attend chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from 
Assembly without penalty each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be 
made for each unexcused absence in excess of two. 

Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in 
writing to the Director of Student Activities before the very next 
Assembly. Failure to do this will automatically result in an un- 
excused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case 
of unavoidable work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a 
permanent excuse for a quarter, a written request, signed by the 
work supervisor, must be submitted to the Director of Student Ac- 
tivities. 

ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS 

Grade reports are issued at the close of each quarter. Upon the 
receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for 
correctness as to the courses recorded, credits, and grades. Any 
corrections needed must be taken care of within one week. No 
change will be made in the permanent record after two weeks from 
the issue of the grade report. 

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 

Each student is required to take a proficiency test in English 
during his junior year. This test is administered as scheduled in the 
calendar once during the fall and winter quarters. A student is al- 
lowed to take the test twice. If he fails to pass the test, he is required 
to enroll in EN 250, a two-hour course in English fundamentals, 
and to pass this course in order to qualify for graduation. A fee of 



62 Oakwood College 

ten dollars ($10.00) is charged for this test. By the end of the 
winter quarter of his senior year, a student must have passed the 
proficiency test in English or the course in English fundamentals. 

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION 

All graduating seniors are required to take both the aptitude 
and advanced sections of the Graduate Record Examination, except 
majors in Theology, Secretarial Science, Home Economics, Busi- 
ness Education and Business Administration, who will be expected 
to take the aptitude section. The Medical College Admissions Test, 
the Dental Aptitude Test, the Law School Admissions Test, the 
National Teachers' Examination, and the Admission Test for Grad- 
uate Study in Business are accepted as substitutes for the Graduate 
Record Examination. 

SEMINAR COURSES 

The only seminar courses offered are those already so under 
departmental sections of the O. C. Bulletin. These require regular 
class attendance as based on the credit hour of the course. 

RESEARCH AND INDEPENDENT STUDY 

Certain departments offer a course entitled "Research and 
Independent Study" for 1 to 4 hours credit to provide qualified 
students an opportunity to work on problems or topics of special 
interest, to engage in research projects, and to do scholarly study 
as advanced work. Following are fundamental requirements for 
enrolling in such a course: The student will (1) be a junior or 
senior in residence with at least a B average (3.00), (2) make 
formal application at the time of regular registration by confer- 
ring with the head of his or her major department, (3) be a major 
in the department in which he or she desires the course "Research 
and Independent Study," (4) receive in writing from the Academic 
Dean final approval to register for the course, (5) receive in writ- 
ing the specific requirements and expectations of the course from 
the department head. 

STUDENT MISSIONARY PROGRAM 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands and 
serve as missionaries. Their responsibilities range anywhere from 
religious leadership to teaching to industrial/ vocational work. For 
details, contact the Department of Church Missions, Oakwood Col- 
lege. 

Following are the academic requirements for student mission- 
aries: 

1 . The applicant must have attained at least sophomore stand- 
ing (minimal 36 quarter hours) with a cumulative grade 
point average of "C" (2.00) or above. 



Standards for Graduation 63 

2. The applicant must have a "B" (3.00) average or above in 
the subject area that he/she is expected to teach as a student 
missionary. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a stu- 
dent missionary, the student shall receive four (4) hours 
of elective credit on a "pass/fail" basis in the area of "Stu- 
dent Foreign Service." Quality of service is determined by 
a written evaluation from immediate supervisor or appro- 
priate official over the student missionary. The student may 
opt for an additional four (4) hours should he/she secure 
prior approval from an instructional department and the 
Academic Policies Committee establishing that more spe- 
cialized mission services will be experienced such as, but not 
limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

GRIEVANCE ON ACADEMIC MAHERS 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instruc- 
tional matters such as perceived unfairness or grading methodology 
or cheating or some misunderstanding within or without the class- 
room is encouraged to confer first with the teacher of the class and, 
if deemed necessary, with the teacher's department chairperson. 
The Academic Dean in such matters should be a last resort after 
the student and/or the teacher and/or the department head has 
gone over the particulars with the other two of these three levels 
of individuals.

BACHELOR OF GENERAL STUDIES DEGREE 

This degree program is an alternative to the B.A. and B.S. 
degree programs. It is designed to give the student who so desires 
an opportunity to choose a broad, interdisciplinary program of 
studies. The B.G.S. degree program, with its smaller Core Curricu- 
lum requirements, provides varied opportunities for students to cross 
departmental lines in obtaining the kind of education that would 
best prepare them for future study of hybrid disciplines. 

The following are the requirements of the B.G.S. degree 
program: 

1. A Core Curriculum of 48 QUARTER HOURS 

Behavioral and Social Sciences 12 hours 

One course must be in History 

Humanities „ 12 hours 

EN 101-102-103 



70 Oakwood College 

Natural Sciences 12 hours 

One course must be in Mathematics 
Religion 12 hours 

RE 101 or RE 111 

2. Instead of a major and a minor, the student will pursue concentrations in at 
least three disciplines, with at least 16 upper division hours in each. A con- 
centration in this context is defined as a unified, departmental area of study 
consisting of a minimum of 36 hours but without any specific course or 
cognate requirements. 

3. The satisfactory- completion of at least 90 QUARTER HOURS at the junior 
and senior levels in any fields with no grade below a "C". Not more than 
30 of the 90 upper level hours or 60 of the 192 quarter hours would be 
accepted from any one department. 

4. To be admitted to the program, students must have completed the core 
curriculum and have a grade point average of at least 2.25. 

5. To remain in this program, each student is required to have his program of 
study approved by his faculty advisor and the Academic Policies Committee 
no later than the end of his sophomore year. 

DEGREES TO MEDICAL AND OTHER 
PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS 

Students who have been accepted to accredited medical, dental, 
or optometry schools before completing requirements for an under- 
graduate degree at Oakwood College may be awarded a Bachelor of 
Science degree in Natural Sciences upon successful completion of 
the first year of medical, dental, or optometry studies provided the 
following conditions are met: 

1. The student must complete three years in an accredited 
undergraduate program of which at least the last year must 
be taken in residence at Oakwood College. 

2. The student must provide proof from a professional school 
of medicine, dentistry, or optometry of successful comple- 
tion of the first year of the respective professional school. 

The B.S. in Natural Sciences is the only degree awarded to 
such students regardless of their specific major pursued while in 
undergraduate school. Students who wdsh to apply for this degree 
must do so in wTiting to the Academic Dean's Office of Oakwood 
College by the second week of the quarter during which he or she 
desires degree conferral.

schools, it is recommended that a student elect a major field of con- 
centration not later than the beginning of the second year. Majors 
and minors in the fields of business administration, history, English, 
behavioral science and political science are generally preferred, 
although other majors may be acceptable. Electives in human 
physiology and anatomy and in mathematics are quite helpful. 

The booklet. Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements,

The major goal of this department is two-fold: to prepare well-qualified 
teachers of business education for the Seventh-day Adventist school system 
and public secondary schools; to equip young men and women with the skills 
and knowledge necessary for them to enter offices as stenographers, sec- 
retaries, and general office workers. This two- fold goal is accomplished by 
requiring the satisfactory completion of curricula that incorporate a proper 
balance in the areas of business administration, secretarial skills and ad- 
ministration, general education, and ethics. 

The department offers two programs for the Bachelor of Science 
degree: A major in Business Education and a major in Office Adminis- 
tration. Two Associate of Science programs with emphasis in Office Ad- 
ministration or General Clerical are also offered. The Associate of Science 
degrees are conferred upon the students at the completion of the two-year 
general clerical or office administration curricula. A minor in Office Ad- 
ministration is also available. 

Students completing the Business Education program meet the re- 
quirements of the State of Alabama and are eligible for a Class B Secondary 
Professional Certificate. All seniors are required to take the aptitude and 
advanced sections of the Graduate Records Examination. 

All skill courses completed elsewhere must be validated by a E)e-

Teacher education at Oakwood College prepares teachers for the early 
childhood, elementary, and secondary levels. Oakwood College is an in- 
stitutional member of the American Association for Colleges of Teacher 
Education (AACTE). The teacher education program is approved by the 
Alabama State Department of Education and the Seventh-day Adventist 
General Conference Department of Education. 

Through reciprocity, graduates from approved programs may receive 
public school certification in approximately 37 states, and church school 
certification throughout North America. 

Graduates in education are employed in a wide variety of settings both 
within the denomination and in the public sector. Some graduates pursue 
advanced studies in such areas as school administration, guidance and 
counseling, special education, school psychology, early childhood educa- 
tion, and other areas.

ADMISSION TO TEACHER EDUCATION 

Entrance to college does not qualify a student for admission to teacher 
education. Eligibility for admission to teacher education is determined after 
completion of the sophomore year in college. The first two years in college 
provide the student an opportunity to qualify for entrance into a teacher 
education program. Students, in the process of considering a teaching career 
should go immediately to the Department of Education for appropriate 
information and advisement regarding their teaching areas and admission 
into teacher education. 

Criteria for admission into teacher education include the following:

If necessary, a student may repeat required examinations in an effort to 
meet admission standards. Only a limited number of introductory courses in 
education may be earned prior to admission to the Teacher Education 
Program. 

No grade below "C" may apply toward a major or minor field of 
specialization. 

Application to Student Teaching Internship: In their junior year, educa- 
tion students must apply to the Teacher Education Council for admission to 
student teaching for the ensuing senior year. In addition to letters of recom- 
mendation, students are required to have GPA minimums of 2.5 major, 2.0 
minor, and 2.25 overall. Students should plan to take student teaching 
during fall and winter quarters only. All methods courses will be taken 
before student teaching. Although enrollment in other classwork along with 
student teaching is discouraged, permission may be granted under the 
following conditions: 1) a minimum GPA of 3.0 to take one additional 
course and a GPA of 3.5 to take two additional courses, 2) the additional 
coursework should in no way interfere with the student teaching experience.

MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) 

The specific objectives of this department are in agreement with the 
general objectives of the college. 

Mathematics may be classifed according to two general categories, 
pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is very 
abstract, and proof (in the sense of a deductive system) is its most important 
concern. On the other hand, applied mathematics has arisen out of attempts 
to solve problems in the natural sciences and, in particular, the physical 
sciences. This department proposes to present these two points of view as a 
combined and unified whole. 

The department further proposes to develop an appreciation by the 
student of the fact that the One who created and upholds the universe also 
made the integers and gave man the mental power and the will to develop the 
rest of what is called mathematics. 

Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor in 
Education, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. 

Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of the 
following subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administration. 

No grade below "C" may apply on a major or minor.

requisites. All students must audition for the music faculty before enrolling 
as a major or minor. For students who do not meet the general requirements 
of the department, there is a probationary period of one year to demonstrate 
sincerity of purpose, apphcation and attitude. After this period, if the student 
passes a special examination, he will be given full status as a music major. 

All music majors and minors will appear before the music faculty at the 
conclusion of each quarter for a jury examination. 

Participation in a musical organization is required for music majors and 
minors. Voice majors must be in the college choir or Aeolians. They are 
required to take piano unless they are able to pass the Piano Proficiency 
Examination. 

Attendance is required of all majors and minors at all junior and senior 
recitals and lyceum programs. 

All music majors and minors are required to participate in a number of 
public performances. The level and extent of their performances in recitals 
and ensembles will be determined by the music faculty and the student.

NURSING (NU) 

An associate in science degree nursing curriculum is offered to selected 
men and women students. 

The curriculum, approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing, is com- 
posed of general education courses and nursing courses. The program may 
be completed in seven quarters. Upon completion of the program, the 
student will be awarded an Associate in Science degree and will be eligible to 
write the state board test pool examinations for licensure as a registered 
nurse. Graduates will be prepared to serve in staff nurse positions and 
provide care that is common, recurring and immediate in a variety of 
settings. 

One class is admitted to the nursing program each year in the Fall 
quarter. Students wishing to take part of their general education courses 
before taking their nursing courses may do so. The general education courses 
are the regularly constituted courses of the college, and are taken with other 
college students. 

Below are listed the requirements the prospective nursing student must 
meet. 

1. Admission to Oakwood College. 

2. A high school grade point average of 2.50 minimum on a 4.00 
scale. Students applying with G.E.D.'s will be evaluated on an 
individual basis. 

3. A grade of "C" or better in high school or college chemistry and 
algebra. 

4. General Math may be substituted for algebra. 

5. Physics may be substituted for chemistry. 

6. A minimum ACT composite score of 12 is required and 15 is 
recommended. 

7 . A passing score on the English Entrance examination administered 
by the College must be made. 

8. A student who does not meet the high school G.P.A. average or 
ACT requirements may remove these deficiencies by attending 
college for at least two (2) quarters, during which time he may take 
a minimum of 12 hours each quarter in required courses leading to 
nursing, achieving a current and cumulated average of 2.50 or 
above. These students will then be considered on an individual 
basis. 

9. No nursing course may be repeated more than one time. A 
minimum grade of "C" is required in each nursing cognate 
course. A student may make a "C— " in a nursing course for one 
quarter, but is then placed on nursing probation and must make a 
minimum of "C" in the nursing course the next quarter. 



170 Garwood College 

10. Students with previous college work must have a minimum current 
and cumulative grade point average of 2.50 on a 4.00 scale. 

11. Remedial work in English may be required for students whose 
native language is other than English, or who score low on the 
College English Entrance Examination. 

12. Students are required to demonstrate satisfactory performance on 
standardized tests. Low scores on these tests may prevent/delay 
promotion and/or graduation. 

13. A general nursing review will be required of each graduating 
student prior to graduation, unless the student is exempted by the 
faculty of the Department of Nursing. 

14. Transfer students from another major or another college will be 
evaluated on an individual basis. 

15. The applicant must show evidence of physical, mental and moral 
fitness. Further references or information may be required regard- 
ing character, attitude or coping ability in case of questions in these 
areas. 

16. Students must demonstrate safe clinical laboratory performance as 
defined by written criteria available in the Department of Nursing 
office. Failure in either the theory course or clinical laboratory 
course will require repetition of both courses. 

The Oakwood College Department of Nursing will individually con- 
sider Licensed Practical Nurses/I^icensed Vocational Nurses who may wish 
to enter the nursing program by challenging basic nursing courses. 

Whenever a student does not maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 in the 
program, he will be dropped from the nursing courses until he has dem- 
onstrated the ability to maintain a 2.00 average in his general education 
courses. The nursing faculty may then approve re-entry into the program. 

Through a planned system of advisement, a program is planned to meet 
individual needs of students. Faculty advisors will counsel students on 
transferable credits and requirements for academic mobility. 

The student who plans to progress to a baccalaureate degree program in 
nursing should consult the bulletin of the school of his choice. 

A year of college chemistry is usually required. (B.S. degree)

Assistant Professors: Pitt, Wright 



RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) 

The sub-areas of this division are three, namely: (1) RELIGION, (2) 
THEOLOGY, and (3) BIBLICAL LANGUAGES. 

The RELIGION major follows a tailored course of study to prepare for 
Bible Worker Ins tructorship, Classroom Teaching (Elementary, Secondary, 
and Higher Education levels), Literature Ministry, Medical Ministry, 
Foreign Missions, and Laymen Leadership. THEOLOGY is for the major 
who looks to the Pastoral Evangelist ministries (with further ministerial 
training at the SDA Theological Seminary of Andrews University), and to 
the Military Chaplaincy. BIBLICAL LANGUAGES as an area offers a 
minor which includes Greek and Hebrew. 

A guide to the specialty areas of full-time teachers in the department is 
as follows: 

Melancon (New Testament Studies) 
Pitt (Systematic Theology) 
Reaves (Homiletics and Urban Ministry) 
Wright (Pastoral Ministry) 
Because of the large number of persons preparing for the pastoral/ 
evangelistic ministry and the variety of new areas within the church for 
reUgious services, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERY

within the student a deep appreciation for the importance of the Bible in 
determining the true philosophy of life, to encourage the application of the 
teachings of Jesus Christ to the problems of our day, and to provide training 
for students who desire to serve the church and humanity.

Quarters Registration Dates 

Fall Quarter September 3,4,6,&7, 1981 

Winter Quarter January 3-5, 1982 

Spring Quarter March 21-23, 1982 

Veterans - A program is available which allows the Veterans Adminis- 
tration to make advance payments of educational assistance for veterans and 
other eligible persons for the first month or part of the first month in which 
the person enters training plus the succeeding month. 



184 Oakwood College 

Payments under current veterans' benefit programs are made directly to 
the student; therefore, veterans must follow the same procedures in meeting 
financial obligations as apply to other students. 

For application and further details contact the Advisor to Seniors and 
Veterans in the Admissions and Records Office. 

Oakwood College is approved by the Veterans' Administration as an 
accredited training institution. Those who qualify for educational benefits 
should contact the nearest Veterans' Administration Office. A certificate of 
eligibility will be issued by the Veterans' Administration. Veterans are 
required to maintain satisfactory progress as listed on page 47. 

OVERSEAS STUDENTS 

Applicants from overseas are required to deposit one quarter's resi- 
dence fee plus tuition in U.S. funds with the college business office prior to 
the issuance of the 1-20 form (1-20 Form is used in securing the U.S. student 
visa). 

Students on resident visas, student visas, or visitor visas, will be 
required to present budget to verify financial support for payment of ac- 
count, before official acceptance is issued by the Admissions office. This 
budget should show total cost of academic as well as living expenses, and 
how these expenses will be paid. Also this statement should be notarized as 
being a true and accurate statement by the student and his sponsor. (Refer to 
Admissions booklet). 

CREDIT REFUND POLICY 

Withdrawal: 

When a student withdraws from all courses and leaves school, these 
practices are followed: 

1 . Date of Withdrawal. The official date of withdrawal and the effec- 
tive date of the calculation of a refund is the date on which the 
completed drop voucher is turned in to the Records Office. 

2 . Tutition . A minimum charge of $50 is made if the student withdraws 
during the first 7 days after the published registration date. 
90% is refunded if student withdraws 8-14 days after the /?MZ7//5/ze^ 

registration date. 
60 % is refunded if student withdraws 15-2 1 days after ihepublished 

registration date. 
NO REFUND if student withdraws more than 22 days after the 

published registration date. 
These charges apply to part-time as well as full-time students. 

3. Room and Board. The $15.00 store card is nonrefundable. The 
charges will be prorated on a daily basis (any part of a day is counted 
as a full day). 

4. Identification Card. The student must return the ID card to the 
Student Affairs Office to establish eligibility for refund. 



Financial Information 185 



5 . Illness. Special consideration may be given for tuition refunds in the 
case of prolonged illness. 

6. Return Home. If the student does not have funds for return fare 
home, an emergency assistance may be granted, provided there is 
sufficient credit in the account. 

7. Room Deposit. Refund will be made when the residence hall dean 
returns the signed residence hall contract to the Accounting Office . 
The College reserves the right to apply the deposit to any unpaid 
obhgations. 

8. Refunds. Credit refunds will be made 30 days after the monthly 
statement is received for the last month the student was in school, in 
order to be certain that all charges have been processed. For exam- 
ple, if a student drops out of school in December, a credit refund 
would not be made until after the January statement is prepared 
during the first week of February. 

If the student has received financial aid during the current quarter, any 
credit balance over $ 100 will be credited to the aid fund, with priority given 
to loans. Amounts less than $100 will be refunded to the person responsible 
for the student's account. Cash refunds will not be made to the student 
without authorization from the parent or the financial sponsor. 
Change in Study Load: 

During the first week following registration, students may make neces- 
sary changes in their class programs without charge. A fee of $5 will be 
assessed for each change in the course program after the first week following 
registration. No reduction in tuition charges will be made for program 
changes made after three weeks following registration. 

STUDENT BANK 

The Business Office offers a deposit banking service for the conveni- 
ence of students. Financial sponsors should provide the students with a 
regular monthly allowance so that personal items may be purchased by the 
student. 

REMITTANCE 

PAYMENT OF REGISTRATION FEES SHOULD BE MADE IN 
THE FORM OF: BANK DRAFTS, MONEY ORDERS, CASHIER'S 
CHECKS, CERTIFIED PERSONAL CHECKS OR CASH. MAKE ALL 
CHECKS PAYABLE TO OAKWOOD COLLEGE. 

Send payments directly to the student finance office and indicate the 
name of student to receive credit. 

MARRIED STUDENTS HOUSING 

The College has a limited number of one- and two-bedroom apartments 
for married students. A stove and refrigerator are provided but the student is 
expected to provide his furnishings and pay the monthly utility bills. Married 
students residing in College apartment units are required to pay a deposit of 
$125.00. This advance payment is paid in two installments. A payment of 



186 Oakwood College 



$50 is due with the housing application. A payment of $75 is due at the time 
the apartment or trailer is rented. This $75 payment will be refunded if the 
apartment is left clean and in proper order and after approval by the Housing 
Manager. The charges are: 

One- Bedroom Apartment $ 95.00 per month 

Two-Bedroom Apartment $1 10.00 per month 

Residence in apartment is contingent upon student being registered for 
not less than ten (10) hours per quarter for three quarters of the school year. 
Write the Business Manager for reservations on campus. 

RESIDENCE HALL DEPOSITS 

Before registration, all students living in the College residence halls are 
required to pay a housing deposit of $50.00. 

If this is not paid before the day of registration, the deposit will be added 
to the entrance fee. This deposit is held in trust until (upon receipt of a 
satisfactory inspection report) the student vacates his room or apartment, 
leaves it in good condition, pays off his account in full, and turns in the keys. 
The Business Office will then issue a check for the deposit to the student. 
Should the room or apartment be left untidy or damaged, the deposit will be 
forfeited. 

In addition, the housing deposit will be regarded as security against 
damage to institutional property throughout the course of the school year. 
The cost of any arrangements necessary to correct the misuse or abuse of 
College property and equipment on the part of a student will be charged to 
that student and the amount will be deducted from the housing deposit. 
Excessive abuse, the correction of which requires the use of the entire 
deposit before the end of the school year will necessitate a new cash deposit 
before the student will be permitted to register the following quarter. In cases 
where the abuse is judged to be a chronic characteristic of the student, he 
may be asked to give up his quarters and withdraw from the residence hall. 
This of course will jeopardize the student's continued matriculation at the 
College. 

MUSIC CHARGES 

Students who register for music lessons are expected to continue taking 
lessons throughout the quarter. No refund is made if lessons are dropped 
after the second lesson of any quarter for reasons other than prolonged illness 
or withdrawal from school. Students who drop within the first week will be 
charged the single lesson rate of $6.00 per lesson. Students are entitled to 
take, but may not receive, a grade for less than a minimum of nine lessons. 
Lessons lost because of the student's irregularity in attendance may not be 
made up. 

Students who major or minor in music will be charged the regular 
tuition rates. Students taking music without credit should pay the following: 

Nine half-hour lessons $50.00 per quarter. 

Band fee per quarter — $10.00.

at Oakwood College each taking twelve quarter hours or more and having the 
same financial sponsor, a tuition rebate of 5% will be applied to each 
statement. A 10% rebate will be applied to each account when three or more 
students have the same financial sponsor and are taking twelve or more 
quarter hours each. 

TERMINAL LEAVE PROCEDURES 

A student terminating or suspended from Oakwood College during any 
given quarter is required to obtain a terminal leave form from the Student 
Affairs Office, and obtain appropriate signatures. 

Identification Cards — The student must return his/her ID Card and/or 
check-out voucher to the Student Affairs and Student Finance Offices to 
establish eligibility for refund.

percent of their earnings for tithe. These funds will be transferred to the local 
conference treasurer. 

PROPERTY INSURANCE 

Oakwood College is not responsible for the loss of private property by 
fire, or other causes. It is recommended that all students arrange for proper 
insurance coverage for their personal property. 

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS FOR FINANCIAL AID 

Section 132 of the Educational Amendments of 1976 states that a 
student shall be entitled to receive federal student assistance and benefits 
only if "that student is maintaining satisfactory progress in the course of 
study he is pursuing, according to the standards and practices of the institu- 
tion." 

To be eligible for maximum benefits under all Title 7 K (Federal Finan- 
cial Aid) Program, the student must register for no less than a full-time class 
load of twelve (12) hours each quarter and also meet the following require- 
ments (the student should be aware, however, that it takes an average of 16 
hours quarterly to graduate in four years): 

Quarter Hours Financial Aid 

Attempted Suspension Level 

0-36 1.25 

37-72 ,; 1.50 

73-108 1.75 

108 up 1.95 

1 . Entering FRESHMEN must register for a minimum of 72 hours and 
successfully complete at least 9 hours i\iQ first quarter, at least 72 the 
second quarter, and an accumulated total of at least 36 the third 
quarter with a grade point average of no less than 1 . 25 (D) at the end 
of the third quarter. 

2. SECOND YEAR students (36 hours finished with minimum 1.25 
GPA) must register for a minimal 72 hours and successfully com- 
plete at least 9 hours i\\\s fourth quarter, at least 72 hours the fifth 
quarter, and an accumulated total of at least 72 hours the sixth 
quarter with an overall grade point average of no less than 1 . 50 
(D-f ) at the end of the sixth quarter. 

3. THIRD YEAR students (72 hours finished with a minimum 1.50 
GPA) must register for a minimum of 12 hours and successfully 
complete at least 9 this seventh quarter, 1 2 the eighth quarter, and an 
accumulated total of at least 108 hours the ninth quarter with an 
overall grade point average of no less than 1.75 (C— ).

GPA) must register for a minimum of 12 hours and successfully 
complete at least 9 quarter hours the tenth quarter, 12 hours the 



Financial Information 189 

eleventh quarter, and an accumulated total of at least 144 hours the 
twelfth quarter with a cumulative grade point average of no less than 
1.95 (C-). 
5. Any student registering beyond tht fourth year, must successfully 
complete twelve (12) quarter hours each quarter thereafter, and 
maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 (C). 
To receive less than maximum federal aid, a student must register for 
and complete a minimum of 6 hours. Such students are required to maintain a 
GPA of at least 1.50 (0-72 hours) and 1.75 (73-108 hours). 

Students failing to maintain the minimum standards of satisfactory 
progress as defined by Oakwood College will not be eligible to receive Title 
IV (Federal Financial Aid) Funds. Those students who are eligible to receive 
Title IV Funds but also maintain a GPA less than 2.0 must take part in 
Oakwood' s Special Remedial Instruction Program (SIP) conducted by the 
department called Inner College. 

The student's financial aid may also be terminated if it becomes 
apparent, through irregularity of class attendance, failure to prepare assign- 
ments, and/or to take examinations as required, etc. 

If a student becomes ineligible to receive Title IV Funds, for failure to 
maintain satisfactory progress , he or she may be considered for restoring for 
this eligibility by: 

1 . Participating in the Special Instruction Program (SIP) conducted by 
Inner College; 

2. Establishing the minimum requirement of GPA; 

3. Making a written appeal to the Chairman of the Financial Aid 
Committee and/or the Director of Student Financial Aid. 

FEDERAL FUNDS OR SOURCES OF AID 

1 . Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG) 

Application to this program is available to each student accepted for at 
least half-time enrollment at a post-secondary institution, generating a grant 
that cannot exceed one-half the cost of education. The maximum grant for 
the 1981-82 school year is $1,750.00 (based on your school's cost). 

The student must be a United States citizen or permanent resident and 
must be attending an eligible school. The eligibility for Basic Grants has 
been extended to the period required for completion of the first under- 
graduate baccalaureate course of study. For further information or applica- 
tion, contact your high school counselor or the Financial Aid Office at 
Oakwood College. 

The name will be changed to Pell Grants for the 1982-83 school year, in 
honor of Senator Clairbome, Pell (D-RI) who is the original architect of the 
program. 

2. Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are available to a limited 
number of undergraduate students who can demonstrate a financial need. 



190 Oakwood College 

The maximum SEOG award has been increased to $2,000.00 per academic 
year, which is proportionally reduced if a student is enrolled for less than a 
full academic year. The eligibility for SEOG has been extended to the period 
required for completion of the first undergraduate baccalaureate course of 
study. For further information, or application, contact your local high school 
counselor or the Financial Aid Office at Oakwood College. 

3. Guaranteed State Loan (GSL) and Federally Insured Student Loans 
(FISL) 

Under this program an undergraduate student may borrow (from his 
hometown bank or local financial institution) with established annual loan 
maximum of $2,500.00 for dependent students and $3,000.00 for indepen- 
dent students. This loan cannot exceed the cost of attendance, minus any 
financial aid (to be) received. For students who qualify for Federal interest 
benefits, the Federal Government will pay the interest on the loan while the 
student is in school for at least half-time enrollment. Repayment of principal 
(amount borrowed) and interest (9% for new borrower) begins when the 
student has ceased to be at least a half-time student. For further information, 
contact your local bank or the Financial Aid Office at Oakwood College. 

4. College Work-Study Program (CWSP) 

Students who need a job to help pay for their post-secondary education 
may be eligible for employment by Oakwood College under Federally- 
supported Work-Study Programs. Students must demonstrate a financial 
need and be enrolled in an eligible post-secondary institution as at least a 
half-time student. In general, the salary you receive will be based on the 
current minimum wage, but it may also be related to the type of work you do 
and its difficulty. If you need further information or application forms, you 
may contact your high school counselor or the Financial Aid Office at 
Oakwood College. 

5. National Direct Student Loan (NDSL) 

Students who have been accepted for enrollment by an approved 
post- secondary institution and students enrolled for at least a half-time 
course of study are eligible to apply for a NDSL. Students must demonstrate 
a financial need. The NDSL bears interest at the rate of four (4%) percent per 
year. Repayment of principal and interest on this loan begins when the 
borrower ceases to be enrolled for at least half-time, or six months after 
he/she graduates, whichever comes first. 

An eligible student may borrow up to a total of $3,000.00 if he has not 
completed two (2) years of a program leading to a Bachelor's degree; 
$6,()00.00 if he is an undergraduate student who has completed two (2) years 
of study toward a Bachelor's degree and has achieved third year status (this 
total includes any amount you borrowed under NDSL for your first two (2) 
years of study). For further information or applications, contact your local 
high school counselor or the Financial Aid Office at Oakwood College.
